Would love to know whether anyone else in the Bay Area got the same dropout.
I watched the show that night but can't recall an audio drop/video glitch that blatant. It doesn't mean, however, that it didn't happen in my area (Vallejo).

Yes, I saw it. It looks to be an encoder/compression glitch by Comcast, probably done at their Colorado sat transmission facility. It appears to be 2 P frames.

(Video compression picture types)

At live speed it would not have looked as bad as that single frame capture, for me it was just some horizontal macroblocking lines across the middle of the image. And there was audio dropout as well.

This instance of video/audio dropout was not caused by our home equipment as far as I can tell.
